Good Wednesday morning.
The boys at Overclockers Club show us how to remove the Athlon64/Opteron heatspreader. Techgage has a set of 1GB A-Data EPP PC2-8000 Vitesta Extreme Edition (that's a mouthfull) memory up for review. Virtual Hideout has a nice Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 overclocking adventure for us to read about.
Overclocking the Core 2 Duo is extremely easy in my opinion, especially with a quality motherboard. It's actually dangerously easy because cranking this E6400 up past 3.2GHz was super easy, but the heat generated is the killer here. And if you don't monitor the temperatures you're crazy. I used the included AiSuite...
If you want to go Core 2 Duo but don't want to blow a lot of money on the motherboard you'll want to read hardCOREware's review of the Gigabyte S-Series Core 2 Duo mobo. Finally TweakNews asks whether PC gaming is getting more boring.
